A Gothic fantasy pendant in vintage black beads and black sea glass. The pendant is made by beading tightly around a piece of, fairly rare, black sea glass. It's always been hard to find truly black glass, most of the glass that looks black turns out to be dark green when held up to the light, recently, however, I've found quite a few pieces. The pendant has many strands of modern beads in an iridescent blue, each strand ends either in a black vintage bead or a peach coloured fresh water pearl, a few shorter strands sit in front of these, with tiny gold coloured hearts at the ends. The same iridescent blue beads form the little bail, through which I have threaded an old piece of black velvet ribbon; I'm not sure exactly how old this ribbon is but I have had it for a long time and I believe it may go back to the 70s at least. The beads making up the mount are even older, some as early as Victorian times. The central row of tiny gold coloured beads were a recent buy, from a dealer in vintage stuff, they could easily be 1920s I think, I bought a largish bag but quite a few have gone a bit oxidised, they are metal but I have no idea what the metal is! The pendant has a modern gold coloured T bar fastener. The pendant measures a little over 2" including the strands and the ribbon is around 18" long.
